I want to query the IF-TABLE for a subset of the OIDs in the table.
Out of the IF-TABLE, I am querying for 10 of the 19 columns.
My question is related to efficiency on my system and speed of polling. I am using TableUtils.getTable to make the request.
Which is better(more efficient) to use out of the following?
- A single request for each needed column
i.e. tableUtils.getTable(target, [column-oid])
- Send an array of OIDs to the TableUtils.getTable() method containing all or some of the OIDs
i.e. tableUtils.getTable(target, list-of-column-oids)
- Request the entire table and parse out the unneeded data at the end.
ie. tableUtils.getTable(target, [table-oid]
Thanks in advance for your help.
